Brown Eyed Babe

I never thought I would have a brown eyed baby.  I don't know why I really thought that, but it does surprise me. 

Perhaps because Andrew's eyes are so blue that I expected the same with Lily. After all, their dads both have brown eyes and Andrew's are brighter blue than my own, so I knew blue was possible.  I was hoping Lily would end up with dark hair like her daddy with blue eyes like me. I love that combo!  Since her hair didn't really grow until well after 2 years old, the hair was still up in the air.  It's blonde. I suspect it will darken as she gets older just as mine did and Andrew's did also.

Actually, Lily has two different colored eyes. Slightly. But in natural light, you are able to truly tell. One is more dark brown and the other is more of a golden amber.

Brown eyes and blonde curly hair?  Not my expectation at all. 
She is stunning.  


  1. I LOVE that picture of Lily, she is beautiful inside and out (just like her momma). I told Greg that I really wanted a baby with blue eyes and he gave me one! Ha! I waited an entire year for her eyes to change and they never did. yay!

  2. so cute! great follower :)

  3. That's one of my favorite pictures of her! Love it!
    I honestly expected all of my kids to have brown eyes. I'm still surprised that two of them have blue eyes...although, I am a sucker for brown eyes!
